I'm with the band

Here are a few snaps from Mark's latest gig... The band, American Giant, has only recently formed and this was their first outing. They played at a walkathon/fundraiser event for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America, which was a little bizarre and very different from the standard smoky-drunken-divebar gig. I have to admit, though, watching them play onstage at the foot of the Washington Monument was pretty kickass. The National Sylvan Theater is little more than a rickety old bandshell, but the location makes it almost majestic. Having Jerome from Jimmy's Chicken Shack there to run sound on equipment from Rams Head didn't hurt either.

cool view from onstage

Hopefully there will be more American Giant gigs (and, ahem, a web site) soon, and y'all can come out and join us next time! Bring your earplugs. :)

Re: I'm with the band
Nice pics of your man jammin the Mall. Pretty cool. I was at the Sylvan when the crowd rioted during the Cranberries free concert, of all bands. Drunken teens were throwing beer bottles at the cops. It was completely out of control for like a half hour until they got the horses in. We dragged our cooler of bloody marys off to the side and just watched the show, waiting for the tear gas that never came.

Blog that!

Miss you, Sister.

Re: I'm with the band
You have definitely upped the ante, my friend. Next AG show: tear gas & horses!!! (Not mention a cooler of bloody marys.)
